Attention without Awareness

So it turns out that attention is not the same thing as awareness 1, 2, 3, 4,. It seems really weird that you can pay attention to things that you're not aware of, but you can. Attention and awareness often overlap a lot, but they can also diverge wildly. 
Most occurrences of attention without awareness aren't too crazy. It actually happens all the time and again, we're not even aware of it.
